Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

Your neck is a complex network of muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and discs that has to continually support the weight of your head and move to allow you to see. It’s no surprise, then, that it’s common for something to go wrong inside your neck.

Fortunately, Dr. Manohar has extensive experience treating neck problems. He helps patients find relief from neck pain stemming from:

  • Disc problems
  • Radiculopathy (pinched nerve)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Injuries, including whiplash
  • Nerve compression
  • Muscular strain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Meningitis

Additionally, neck problems can cause pain that you feel between your shoulder blades. Headaches, migraines, and facial pain can also be linked to problems in your neck. If you’re experiencing pain anywhere in your neck, shoulders, or head, don’t wait to talk with Dr. Manohar.

How is neck pain treated?

Dr. Manohar personalizes a neck pain treatment program to you, the root cause of your pain, and the factors that affect your neck, like your job and lifestyle choices. He usually blends multiple treatments to help you get comprehensive relief.

Your neck pain treatment plan may include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Interventional pain-relieving injections 
  • Cervical spine conditioning exercises 
  • Lifestyle changes, like exercise, nutrition, and supplement recommendations
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
  • Medication
  • Stem cell therapy

Ultimately, Dr. Manohar’s goal with treatment is to stop your pain while helping your neck heal. He works with you to find lasting relief and support for your long-term neck health. He prioritizes a nonsurgical approach because he has seen how frequently neck surgery limits mobility and quality of life for his patients, even long after they recover from the procedure.  

How can I avoid neck pain in the future?

In addition to helping you find relief from your present neck pain, Dr. Manohar can help you make changes to avoid it in the future. Exercises to correct your posture and small changes like adjusting your workplace to be more ergonomic can go a long way toward relieving the strain on your neck day in and day out. Additionally, if you’re a smoker, quitting smoking can help you find greater neck pain relief.
